Pretty much ever since I moved to Edinburgh I’ve been wanting to go on a guided tour in the Old Town, but just never quite made it. We did go on one of those ghost tours in the underground vaults when I was still living in London and only visiting, but we had to interrupt the tour as I thought I was going to faint due to lack of oxygen (and perhaps my hangover had something to do with it too…)
I’ve posted some wintry photos of my home town in the past but it’s in summer that the town really comes alive and shows off its beauty. During my 7-week stay this summer I’ve taken a bunch of photos of Old Borgå that I thought I’d share here with you as well!
When the November darkness and rains prevail it’s nice to dig into some summer memories. This will be another TBT post, this time from our short stay at a friend’s summer cottage on an island in the beautiful Finnish archipelago. There was a proper 40-day heatwave in Finland last summer, but we arrived literally the day it ended. The weather was still comfortably warm (especially when you compare it to Scottish summer weather…), so we had a lovely sunny stay on the island anyway. Unfortunately I didn’t take many photos, and the ones I took were with my iPhone, so these will have to do!
As I’ve mentioned, we spent around 10 days in Finland last August, so I thought I’d finally share a few photos from the trip – mainly of my niece and nephew, so stop reading now if you’re not that into children! As these two rug rats’ parents were busy organising a wedding, we got to babysit them quite a lot – which both Matthew and I enjoyed very much. Plus it’s good practice I guess (although I had to do all the diaper changing, hmpf.)
Hello from a sunny Edinburgh!
It was almost a year ago since I moved to Edinburgh from London, and only now did I visit for the first time – it had been way too long if you ask me! It was so nice to be back, and I instantly felt like home and as I hadn’t left at all. Must confess I have missed the London buzz!
